Audry Adams is the mother of the kid throwing the tantrum in front of all the other guests at the birthday party.

Yes, many of us have been there. But, Audry has those difficult parenting moments more often than most. Her oldest son has Asperger syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder that can make it difficult for kids to communicate well, engage in social interactions, be emotionally flexible, and calm down when they are upset.

Because Audry has had so many challenges as a mother, she has learned to seek out ways to redeem these difficult moments. She shared her story on our podcast so that other parents of “difficult” kids would know that they are not alone in the unique struggles that they face.

Audry is the mother of three children, the wife of Jim and a supportive and encouraging presence to a large community of friends.

    I have really appreciated this podcast. I got the link from the FB page Asperger’s Support Network. I would so love to connect with Audry. Her experience sounds so similar to ours. She’s very well spoken. I also appreciate her sharing about God and her faith. We have struggled with parenting our daughter (age 9) who was recently diagnosed with Asperger’s. This podcast was a warm embrace for me. Thanks!
